Imagining New York City's Future - the .nyc TLD Pages

As the Internet ­becomes central to civic, commercial, community, and cultural life, those with the best tools and understanding of its capabilities will thrive. Our mission is to prepare the city for the networked future. To do so, we will use the .nyc TLD (like .com and .gov but just for NYC) to educate and empower New York City's residents and organizations to better connect with one another and the world. The opportunity to acquire the .nyc TLD is expected arise in 2011. Inc, a NYS not-for-profit, created this wiki to engage the public in imagining how to best plan and develop .nyc as the infrastructure for our increasingly digital age.

Learn more about our effort here.

The meeting's organizer (and founder of Inc., Thomas Lowenhaupt, has experience in the hands-on and policy realms. As an interactive marketing consultant, he's guided firms in the insurance, telecommunications, and banking industries. He developed public information kiosks and published an early online directory of interactive services. A longtime Internet governance participant, he's now an advocate for the .nyc top level domain.
